The most important results of the wide-angle redshift survey of galaxies carried out in the Southern Hemisphere (SSRS) and its extensions are reviewed and compared to those of the CfA Survey. Here the authors emphasize the interpretation of the data as challenges to different scenarios of galaxy formation with dark matter. The definition of a fair sample of the Universe with the presently available databases is also discussed.
